The Life Cycle Of Blanco

Full-Length Play / One-Man Show

Antipodes Theatre Company, Blacktown Arts, Brand X, Braver Stage, National Theatre of Parramatta, Q Theatre

​2020, 2021, 2023

Part monologue, part eulogy, and packing more than a punch, Blanco honours his dying creative ambitions with documentarian flair. An Asian character study with weights, floor work and audience interaction, this fusion of verbatim and physical theatre explores the fractured mind of one man.

Blanco has decided to end the 'short life cycle' of his acting career due to the culminating effect of hidden and casual racism on his psyche. How do we thrive in life when faced with so many dead ends in our artistic endevaours? Blanco proves that sometimes truth can be more entertaining, but it's up to you if you want to laugh.
